Negotiating for Peace as a Non-State Actor (IPSI Practitioner Intensive)

Friday, April 13, 2018 to Saturday, April 14, 2018
Event Description: 

Non-state actors can focus entirely on finding pathways to end violence and build peace rather than advancing narrow national interests or government policies. Official negotiations are the responsibility of government representatives, but non-state actors can facilitate the process and explore options beyond the normal frameworks. However, they must earn trust and credibility with the adversaries to succeed. The instructor and his team were credited by an African head of state with creating the “momentum and the spirit which made this historic achievement (a peace agreement) possible.” The course – including readings, lectures and experiential learning – is based on personal experience as well as lessons learned from the Alliance for Peacebuilding, the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict and other non-state negotiators. - Taught by Charles "Chic" Dambach
